three In Custody After Lacking 11-12 months-Previous Woman Discovered | NewsRadio WFLA

NEW PORT RICHEY – Three men are likely to be charged with the disappearance of an 11-year-old girl found safe.

Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco says 19-year-old Reginald Clark from Jacksonville and a 17-year-old from Clearwater communicated with the kid on social media and took them away from their school to meet 22-year-old Luis Encarnacion from see Tampa Monday. Nocco says the girl was found at the older man’s house and that he wasn’t having her best interests in mind.

Clark and the 17-year-old are accused of disrupting child custody. Charges against Encarnacion are pending.

Sheriff Nocco says the girl lives in Thotonosassa, Hillsborough County, but attends River Ridge Middle School in Pasco. He says that she will have help available for any trauma she may have suffered.

According to Nocco, this reminds parents of the dangers online media can pose to children.
